A Garage Sale for the Ages

Below are portions of the e-mail transmitted last week by the fine emporium Dusty Groove America. I removed the pricing information because this not paid advertising, but trust me, the sale prices are fantastic.


FYI: Last year the store acquired 20,000 LPs, 40,000 45s and several thousand CDs from WGN, who figured they no longer needed them.

“Hey there! Sorry to bother you out of the blue, but we’ve got some special news we wanted to share with you — a huge sale at the Dusty Groove store in Chicago!

We’ll be running this sale for one day only at our store at 1120 N Ashland Ave in Chicago — from 10am to 5pm on Saturday, August 24 (with Sunday, August 25 as a rain date). If you’ve ever been to one of our garage sales, you know what to expect — amazing bargains at rock-bottom prices designed to move a lot of music in a short amount of time. And for the first time ever, we’ll also be auctioning off whatever’s left at 5pm to the highest bidder — so bring a truck if you’d like to walk away with an entire collection’s-worth of music!

There’s no way we can share all the details of the music with you in advance — but we’ve already spent weeks putting together this special selection, and we’ve got a lot more work ahead of us in the weeks to come. We really hope you can make it — and we can promise plenty of goodness if you make the trip!

The whole thing happens on  Saturday, August 24 (rain date Sunday, August 25)– starting at 10am in Chicago. See you there!”
